Our latest thinking on some of the world’s most difficult societal challenges
McKinsey on Society is the online publishing site for the firm, which houses McKinsey’s latest insights on pressing social issues. The site draws together research and resources from across the firm, in order to share our collective insights on five major societal topics: Global Health, Economic Development, Education, Social Innovation and Sustainability.

Voices on Society is a section of the site that aims to convene thinkers from around the world on a single topic at a time, offering their perspectives on the world’s most complex societal challenges. Each volume focuses on a new challenge, bringing an array of rich content to bear, whether the issue is providing education for young people in Africa, healthcare to new mothers in India, or controls on the emission of greenhouse gases in the developed world. The viewpoints are diverse and provocative. They come from all sectors, including academia, government and corporate, as well as from the frontiers of new thinking and new methodologies.
We hope that by providing a global perspective and a variety of viewpoints, new solutions can emerge.
Bringing these perspectives to you, our audience, is only part of the goal. We also want to provide a forum where the worldwide community of social innovators, non profits, and all individuals passionate about creating change can come together to discuss, debate and collaborate on new ways of addressing societal problems. We invite you to join this vital conversation.
The Social Sector Office helps the world’s leading institutions address chronic, complex societal challenges. We draw on the best of McKinsey’s expertise to strengthen our clients’ ability to deliver meaningful and sustainable social change. The purpose of McKinsey on Society is to capture some of the lessons and insights from our work.
